Truth Behind Inspiration is Often Left a Mystery

One of the delights of art is using unpleasant experiences to stimulate one's muse, thereby turning difficulties into positive experiences. I had no idea until the end of creating this drawing that a spider would be hanging there, although I did know something unpleasant was clearly afoot when I intentionally drew those eyebrows. I am curious right now about what was the real life inspiration behind Little Miss Muffet.
